Collard – Ode

Collard is the musical project of London based artist Joshua Collard who crafts chilling soundscapes drenched in dark and smoky R&B that cuts deep in its songwriting and production. Since introducing himself with the exceptional single “Walls of Jericho” last year, Collard has gone onto release his brilliant, Zach Nahome-produced Clean Break EP which also featured “Arrival”, “Burning Truth” and “Departure”. This past year, the alt-R&B singer/songwriter provided his slick vocals to fellow Londoner and COLORS alumni Kojey Radical’s “Icarus” and “Utopia” and most recently dropped his official debut single “Sofa” this past summer.

For his COLORS session however, Collard showcases another side to to his artistry with a performance of unreleased track “Ode”. Setting the tone beautifully with that very first “oooh” uttered in that gorgeous falsetto of his, Collard is on full seduction mode with those lush vocals effortlessly wrapping themselves around those warming, groovy guitar licks and drums. Check out the stunning performance up top and be sure to keep an ear out for this rising artist – he’s the future.
